Scaling Early College to Impact Educational Attainment

Commitment by

Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District

In 2014, Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District (PSJA) committed to scale its early college program to all high schools in the District. This initiative will seamlessly connect the entire 8,400 high school student body to community college and/or university education while they are still in high school. This initiative will decrease the dropout rate and dramatically increase the number of students who complete either a community college certificate, Associate Degree, or 60 college hours while still in high school.
